Elicit* establishes a virtual space in a very public open space for people to meet and interact with each other.
Elicit* helps to introduce people. It is a 6x4m screen displaying a mirror image of the space. The image on the screen is exactly the same space but it has copies of each person as they move through the space. The aim is to create chance encounters with others in a virtual space and then possibly in the real space. In the past open public spaces such as squares were places for people to meet and talk. Virtual spaces are now a prefered place to meet for some people. Elicit* might be both.
